fresh herbs like parsley or dill
3 teeth (cloves) garlic
Bay leaves
ground black pepper
black peppercorns

3 spoon sunflower oil
3 litres water

Cook the broth from water, meat and carrots (slice with rings).
You can cut it with other figure, of course. The broth must be very
"clear". Cook it for a 1 1/2 hour. Also you can prepare this broth
before the main cooking. For an example for a day before. Add the
few black peppercorns and couple of Bay leaves into the boiling

Remove a rind from beetroot and slice each one like a chips, though
you can make a different size of the sliced pieces on your taste.
Then put it into boiling broth (after 1 1/2 hour), but put off from
broth the Bay leaves before Potato pieces, slice as you like (but
no smaller than 2 1/2 x 3 cm), put into broth too, after beetroot.

Chop an onion in same time and put it on frying pan with 3 spoon
boiling sunflower oil. The beetroot and potato are boiling, the
onion is roasting do the next step Chop a cabbage like strow,
but don't do it too small. So do it with fresh peppers too..and

diluted by water or by broth and looked as thick tomato juice, add
into the roasting onion and stew all for a 3 - 4 minutes.

Add cut cabbage with other cut vegetables into broth and all sauce
from frying pan then. Notice, that the broth mustn't boil too

Put a salt and all of those spices which you have prepared before..on
your taste. Don't shy to try your dish in process. If you feel that
your Borsch ('s Borsch instead of broth!) is too sweet tight

sweet taste add a bit of sugar.

Don't forget about garlic! Chop it and add at the end, before 5
minutes exactly. Also add new Bay leaf for aromat. After all have
being done turn off your oven and let Borsch there. That's all!!

sour cream into the plate. You'll enjoy it on 200%. Try Borsch with
dark bread and spring onion (no cut..just whole!) Also you can use
the toasts polished with garlic. Would you like to get a real
feeling of one of the Ukrainian village? Try Borsch with Pampushki

The second moment! Borsch and meat from borsch have much more better
taste after 2 days. Check it out! Thus you must save one right.
Notice you must boil pan with Borsch every time you are going to
